Self-Funded Teaching Programmes encompass all “non-mainstream” teaching activities conducted by the University. However, the SFTPs in the School are part of the University’s approved by the quality accreditation board. The School of Management, Information Technology, and Governance are the custodians of nine Self-Funded Teaching Programmes (SFTPs). The full complement of these programmes are offered on the Westville campus and seven of them are offered on the Pietermaritzburg campus.
The SFTPs are seen as both an auxiliary and integral component of the School. They provide access to undergraduate and postgraduate candidates, allowing them to attend convenient evening lectures. Consequently, candidates can pursue a tertiary qualification, after hours, from an established and acclaimed institution such as UKZN. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is the sole undergraduate qualification on offer. The SFTPs also deliver three Postgraduate Diplomas and five Masters by Coursework degrees.
